his very short-lived series followed the Seated Liberty design of the era. Twenty Cent Pieces were struck from 1875 to 1878 with 1877 and 1878 being rare proof-only Twenty Cent Pieces. Philadelphia, Carson City and the San Francisco Mint all struck Twenty Cent Pieces.
The 1876-CC is the ‘key’ to a complete Twenty Cent Piece collection. 10,000 coins were struck but almost all were melted at the Carson City Mint. Today, a decent example of this rare Twenty Cent Piece easily fetches $100,000!
Bright flashy surfaces with heavy white frost on the design and a touch of peripheral toning. Excellent eye appeal.

Well struck with lustrous silver-gray surfaces that are devoid of significant marks and have a faint golden hue.
When tilted and rotated, richly toned mirrored surfaces explode with shades of gold, blue, green, and ruby. Very scarce and desirable with a mintage of 1,260.
High end for the grade with reflective golden-gray surfaces and no significant marks or hairlines.
Sharply struck and very flashy with frosted design features and a light golden hue. Excellent eye appeal with no significant marks or lines.
